This is a lightweight and intuitive video converter which makes much more than simple video conversion ─ it also allows you to convert audio files between formats; it can extract the audio stream from your video files, and provides some helpful video editing functions. The program includes an outstanding number of output presets, many of them optimized for specific models of portable devices.
The program offers a simple but functional user interface that allows you to convert multiple video files at once in batches. It includes a basic built-in media player which also allows you to take snapshots from your video files and save them as image files in JPG, BMP or PNG formats. If any of your source video files contains several audio and/or subtitle tracks, you can select the ones you want to be included in the output video files. You can even load external subtitle files and edit them using the program’s subtitle editor.
As stated before, this video converter includes several video editing functions that you can apply to any of the files on your conversion list. Those functions include video cutting and cropping, video effects, watermarking, and rotation. Video rotation is a function that is rarely found on similar tools. Besides, you can use this program to merge all the source files on your conversion list into a single one. As for the effects that you can apply to your videos, you can tweak their brightness, contrast and saturation, and apply black and white, old film, oil painting, negative, and fog filters, together with many other effects.
Finally, you need to define your desired output format. The program includes lots of presets for devices such as Blackberry, iPad, iPod, iPhone, Samsung, and tablets, besides common video and audio formats. However, regardless of the output preset you select, you can always customize the output video quality and resolution, as well as the audio quality and the number of channels. Unfortunately, the program doesn't allow you to specify values for the output bit rates - you can only select a general quality level among high, normal, and low.
To conclude, I will say that the program provides very good conversion speeds and high-quality results. Gilisoft Video Converter is compatible with all popular versions of Windows operating systems for both 32-bit and 64-bit technologies.
